Human Sciences

The courses differ slightly in that research at the MPhil level represents an extension of existing knowledge, while at the PhD level you will be expected to make an original contribution to knowledge; most students enrol first for the MPhil and transfer to the PhD when their work has sufficiently developed; however, it is possible to enrol directly onto the PhD course if students are appropriately qualified; some students without previous research experience may enrol on the MPhil and complete a diploma in applied research methodologies during their first year of study.

Entry requirements
